2008 SM5 RS Starter relay failure?? (cross-post)
Posting here as well as the other thread...
Went to start the Spyder after a lengthy rest. Only 8K miles ion this machine. Always on battery tender, fresh fuel, checked voltage (12.8), etc. Key on, fuel pump cycles, safety message displays. Push M button, hit starter. ** Fuel pump runs, starter DOESN'T make a sound, fuel pump stops, safety message displays all over again. Everything checkable checks normal electrically. Again, starter doesn't click, turn, nothing.
I'm thinking starter relay, but need to know:
Is this a common problem?
Where is the starter relay so I can check/replace?
And, of course, if my diagnosis is wrong, what do I check next?
